Convert Email in Outlook To Teams Discussion
I get lots of emails. Emails that are directed to 10-20-30 people. It would be nice if Teams would integrate in Outlook so that email can be converted into Teams Discussion. Just like you have IM sign next to Reply, Reply All, Forward there should be Teams. Right now it's endless discussion in email which is counterproductive.

It's implemented, Outlook button "Share in Teams" or channel email available

I like that idea too. With one mouse click you could shift the email conversation into teams and increase the usage rate of teams even more. I often get mails with questions about teams, which I then answer provocatively in teams and not via Outlook - this would massively support my mission to promote the use of teams in our organization.
We need this. Now.
We would love this as some of our employees still send emails instead of using teams like the rest of us. A move to teams button would be awesome. Both for group chats or just single users sending simple questions as an email.
it would be a great idea, if you could convert a conversation in email, direct into a Team chat/Group chat. Hugely helpful if you are transitioning from use of email to teams chat

it would be a good idea to be able to send an email to teams chats and visa versa as some of out staff are stuck in their way of using emails and some don't touch them, it would be good to be able to send an email to the teams chats, to ensure jolly co-operations
Add the teams link back to outlook mail thread to make finding information easier.

Jive has this functionality and it works well. Would be good to see similar in Teams.
